Funk Master Slot (NetEnt)

Funk Master Slot (NetEnt)NetEnt remains one of the most respected slot developers of all time. The latest addition to their already long catalogue of slot machines is Funk Master, a slot that seems to have a touch on the retro vibe- the disco theme to be precise.

I’ve always enjoyed slots from NetEnt, and I couldn’t leave without trying out Funk Master for real money. Here is my honest review of the slot:

Game Set-Up

Funk Master offers a humongous 8x8 reels grid, and here, it’s all about the Cluster Pays system. There are some excellent features inside among them the wild symbols, scatters, multiplier wilds, and free spins (these can boost the game area up to 8x12).

Betting and Prizes

Funk Master is a slot available for real money play, and the least that NetEnt allows on it is $0.20 per spin. It’s a slot that appeals to all levels of players given that it can be played for up to $200 per spin.

The payouts may not be as attractive as the highest that this game can pay per spin is 3,337x the stake. The RTP of 96.04% is pretty good, especially when you consider the lot’s high volatility.

However, be sure to confirm what your online casino is offering since the developer offers different RTPs for this slot game.

Funk Master Slot Features

The 8x8 reels grid that we are getting from this slot is quite huge, especially considering that we are working with the Cluster Pays system.

Once you form a cluster, an avalanche mechanic will come in to remove the winning symbols and replace them with new ones. I love this feature because it makes the process of hitting more wins much easier.

The Dancing Wild will be there to help you substitute the symbols as you form new clusters.

You can also get a Dancing Wild by forming wins within a special Hotspot area. This is randomly allocated to 2x2 locations on each spin. Having all the four icons from that Hotspot will help in forming new clusters, adding a Dancing Wild to the game.

The Multiplier Feature is another great one, and this one will appear on the reels triggering a boost to the wins for that round by the sum printed on it. The highest that a single multiplier can offer is 10x.

The main feature, in this case, is the free spins, and you will need at least 3 scattered Dancing Wilds to trigger up to 6 free spins.

The free spins also offer other goodies like a Hotspot with 3x3 symbols. If you are able to have it appear with all its symbol locations in wins, you will get 2 Dancing Wilds and an extra 1 row within the top part of the game area. This is how the slot is able to expand the game area to 8x12 reels.

Again, the 3+ Dancing Wilds that you use to trigger this feature will remain on the reels during the entire free spins duration.

Theme & Design

It is hard to rule out the disco theme here, and the influence appears to be from the 70s. I love the use of different disco balls as symbols.

These come in various colours like pink, blue, green, yellow, purple, and orange.


Funk Master is a well-designed slot that offers an interesting opportunity to players who enjoy the Cluster Pays functionality.

The disadvantage here is the rather boring theme that was also implemented poorly.

However, when it comes to the payout, the slot does exceptionally well, and I can recommend it to all levels of players.
